TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a multimedia artist and educator based in Rome, Italy and a tenured Associate Professor of Digital Media at The American University of Rome where I also run its Film and Digital Media Program. I have 16 years of university teaching experience in Rome as well as in and around the NYC area. I have offered art and multimedia courses in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. I also have taught online courses to over 20K students in 159 countries around the world since 2014. In July of 2016 I will soon be living and working in Yangon, Myanmar. Follow my adventures at http://kpalana.com .

MY TEACHING STYLE

I excel at turning complex information into something simple, memorable, and easy-to-understand in as short amount of time as possible) to ensure that students get the most important, relevant, and useful information that can be applied immediately to their art, work, and everyday life. I like to initiate lots of hands-on "action" learning activities as well as projects that focus on civic engagement where students also get to co-create the learning experience together with me.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My work is exhibited internationally and online and has received a number of awards. My latest animation, This Too Shall Pass, recently won "Best Animated Short" from the Cannes Short Film Festival. You can view all my awards here: http://kpalana.com/exhibit.pdf

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my MFA from Pratt Institute in Computer Graphics and Interactive Media and also hold a BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I also earned a Diploma in Social Innovation from the UN-Mandated University For Peace, Centre For Executive Education in 2015.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Traveling and volunteering in developing countries rank among my biggest interests. I'm currently researching 21st century learning methods and technologies and am now enjoying exploring the world of online teaching and connecting with a larger, more diverse group of students from all over the world.
